TopicPolymeric Nanocarriers for Targeted Drug Delivery
Nanoscale polymeric particles, in particular self-assembled block copolymer micelles, have been utilized in pharmaceutics for development of novel therapeutic and diagnostic modalities. They can be designed to facilitate the incorporation of a variety of compounds or even particles through a combination of electrostatic, hydrophobic, and hydrogen bonding interactions. The potential application of such polymeric micelles as carriers for multidrug delivery will be discussed.
